R.I.P Mark Linkous aka Sparklehorse

Mark Linkous committed suicide over this past weekend.

I was terribly shocked to hear about it yesterday; when I first moved to Richmond he was one of the people I pointed to as an influence, as well as a local inspiration. The body of work he leaves behind as Sparklehorse (in addition to the collaborations he did with various artists) is equal to that of any of his contemporaries.

Let all of us, especially those of us who consider Virginia our home, those who care about true musicianship and talent, remember this man as one of our own. He will be missed.
